Kewpie Doll lyrics

Well I took my baby to the carnival
An I heard that barker yell ( hey! hey! )
Come on an win yourself a purdy kewpie doll,
All you gotta do is ring the bell!
Well I swung the hammer just as hard as I could,
An you should have heard the wild applause . . . ( hooray! )
When bong went the bell
And the man said,
Well, I guess the kewpie doll is yours!( yeah yeah! )

I said, gimmie a doggie or a teddy bear
Or a high school banner for my wall,
cause I got me a real live kewpie doll
An shes the cutest one of them all!

( kew kew kewpie doll! kew kew kewpie doll!
Kew kew kewpie doll! kew kew kewpie doll! )

Ah then, we walked down the midway
till we saw a crowd an the man said try your skill,
Five shots for a quarter, make a duck hit the water
An give your little baby a thrill
Well, my baby smiled an she kissed me once
An I felt I was nine feet tall
Oh! five shots crashed and the five ducks splashed
An the man gave me a kewpie doll!

I said, gimmie a doggie or a teddy bear
Or a high school banner for my wall,
cause I got me a real live kewpie doll
An shes the cutest one of them all!

( kew kew kewpie doll! kew kew kewpie doll!
Kew kew kewpie doll! kew kew kewpie doll! )

Ah then, my baby said, honey, let m try my luck
An knock the milk bottles off the shelf!
You should have seen this chick, she was a dead-eye dick
Hey! I couldnt do it better myself!
An then my face got red and my chest swelled up
An my eyes bugged outta my head
cause when the prize turned out to be a kewpie doll
This is what my baby said, she said . . .

Gimmie a doggie or a teddy bear
Or a high school banner for my wall,
cause I got me a real live kewpie doll
An hes the cutest one of them all!

I said, shes the cutest one of them all!
An shes the cutest one of them all! ( kew kew kewpie doll! )
An shes the cutest one of them all! ( kew kew kewpie doll! )
An shes the cutest one of them all!
